Dynamic Capability and Performance Outcomes: Roles of Technological Innovation Capacities and Task Characteristics
Developing dynamic capability in turbulent environments is important. The first objective was to examine the
mediating role of technological innovation capacities in the relationship between dynamic capability and performance
outcomes. The second objective was to assess the moderating role of task characteristics in the relationship between
technological innovation capacities and performance outcomes. To address the aims, a survey was conducted in the Taiwanese
high-tech industry. To test the mediating role of technological innovation capabilities, four models were analyzed. In testing
the moderation effect, a multiple-group analysis was used. These analyses suggest that developing dynamic capability has a
positive effect on technological innovation capacities, which subsequently leads to improved performance outcomes. The
results also show that task characteristics have a moderating effect on the relationship between technological innovation
capacities and performance outcomes.
